Saturday Show and Tell - a showcase of things each week that lit up my brain and fired my imagination. Enjoy!
I was on a short story reading binge this week, and came across this artist while reading on Tor.com.

So, not only did NASA thread the magnetosphere needle with Juno, but they sent the cutest and coolest passengers along for the trip. Galileo, Juno, and Jupiter are aluminum LEGO minifigs that stowed along for the ride!
In my quest for all things SF&F, I found an entire market for science fiction poetry. I was led here by Amal El-Mohtar. She's the editor for Goblin Fruit which is a fantasy poetry market, and she's a talented poet herself. I also discovered that my favorite author, Catherynne Valente, has written gobs of SF&F poetry! There are so many rabbit holes to fall down on the internet. If you are without one at the moment, this should take care of it.
In personal news, my story Boys Will Be Boys, But Girls Will Be Queens, was accepted by Zoetic Press for their Alice In Wonderland issue. I'll put the link up on the blog when the issue goes live! A big shout-out to Suz Thackston for her masterful beta-reading of this piece. She's recently posted a beautiful tale on her blog if you want to check it out.
